THE HEADLESS EYES
Aka "Headless Eyes", "Bloodthirsty Butchers"
Taking a trip to the video store as a child was always a treat as my family allowed each of us kids to pick out one glorious film to help us pass the time. During these trips I was always drawn to the horror film section as the tapes in this genre generally had the most “eye popping” (sorry for the pun) cover artwork. Out of these films in the horror section, “Headless Eyes” was one that always grabbed my attention first with its graphic and stellar poster spread across a ‘big box’ with a store made, type writer sticker warning potential renters that they “Must be 18 to rent”. With this warning on the tape I knew my parents would never go for letting me rent the damn thing but it’s eye piercing box artwork burned its way into my retinas and I knew one day I would watch this 70s exploitation horror flick that no doubt would never match the goodness the poster artwork promised.
want to check this out or else they would be better off purchasing much better films made in the similar mold, like "Maniac."
